South Sudan Household Health Survey 2010

The South Sudan Household Health Survey (SHHS 2) marks the second household and health study in post-conflict South Sudan. This exercise was timely, given its relevance to changes in Sudanese geopolitics, which have considerable implications for children and women’s health in the nascent polity. The emphasis of the study is to assess the state of health for children and women and some other important aspects of their wellbeing following the first survey, and to streamline childhood and maternal health services in South Sudan. The study also assesses the

state of other facets related to children and women’s livelihood. This study establishes evidence- based insights concerned with childhood and maternal health experience in South Sudan, the

results of which could be used to develop key strategies for health policy in the area. Covering the ten states South Sudan, the SHHS 2 provides comparative analyses of childhood and maternal health and other aspects of children’s welfare across spaces and according to individual and residence specific indicators.
